Hey 6th gen family, hope you are having a great day and wanted to share my daily 1996 4 door GSR (DB8) that I have slowly been restoring over the past few years.
So let's jump right to it.
B18c1 motor with ITR transmission 4:40 gear set/ limited slip diff ,2,600lb car on the scales, AEM V2 intake, 4-1 header, magnaflow high flow cat, Magnaflow straight threw exhaust, new lost motion assembly,NGK Iridium plugs, Mishimoto dual core radiator and silicon hoses.
: Fortune Auto 500's ,Custom 12k 8k Swift springs, front and rear Skunk2 Pro + camber arms, full corner balance session @ Texas Track Works, Hard race & Moog problem Solver bushings. Centric cryo-treated rotors with Hawk HPS pads. Enkei racing PF01 wheels 16x7 205 45 UHP tires.
Interior /Electronics :
Keeping it pretty simple with a weighted titanium shift knob and a Kenwood exceleron head unit with Alpine type S speakers all the way around and Pinnacle F1 window tinting
Future plans :
Pushing the limits of a daily car to be reliable and pass inspection for the next 3 years when it becomes 25 years old and is registered as a classic. Then the plans completely change for her and you shall see soon enough what is in store.
Here is how she was when I picked her up a few years back.
Despite how nice she looked in all her OEM glory, she still needed a lot of maintenance and work resting under that mask of hers, I seriously was pulling onto my street next to my house when the clutch crap the bed.
Ended up pulling it home with the truck 3 blocks away, thankfully it was not too bad, but it did give me a idea that I had a full restore on my hands for the most part.
Everything was extremely tired and needing instant attention if I was going to keep it on the road at all; I still, to this day, have never blown a motor (started with Honda dirt bikes at age 8) and I was not going to start any time soon. ( I know I could never afford to LOL!!)
So that lit a fire under my butt to get moving with building a fun little corner carving car that could still pass emissions for the next 3 years until it becomes a classic car and then the other plans for it can come into play.
I have a bunch more to the story and progress that has happened and will post more pictures later when I have more time to upload and write for a little bit.
